Items to Purchase:

 Needless to say I am a huge fan or Amazon.com and I purchase pretty much everything for my dogs online on Amazon.com, below is a list of products I use all time time and love. Not everything is necessary, but it is good to have on hand.

1.       First the grooming comb! Such a necessary item. I love this one and have three myself!

Andis Pet Steel Grooming Comb (65730) – 6.39$ found on Amazon.com

Grooming shaver: Wahl Professional Animal Deluxe U-Clip Pet Grooming Kit 16 pc. on Amazon.com for about 45$

Toe nail clipper: GoPets Nail Clippers for Dogs & Cats with 1 Nail File, Orange / Black – on Amazon.com for 14.99$

2.       This is Gate System I recommend for everyone to buy. I really don't suggest getting those little kennels and putting them in it when you are potty training. Puppies do not have control of their bladders until they are between 5-7 months old. So they may have quite the accident and you will have quite the mess. I recommend getting this gate system, or one like it. You can put down old towels and place a dog bed in there. Along with their food and water dishes and toys. Then at the very front of the gate where they come out place the pee pad. That is where they will run to come out and see you and that is where they will be prone to go potty. It is such a better choice than kenneling, but of course the decision comes down to what you want to do with your puppy. :)

MidWest Exercise Pen – you can get it on Amazon.com for around 36-40$ not bad!

3.       Dog beds are super important for your puppy. Just like us, they need a place to sleep and the first few weeks they are home with you, they will sleep a lot. They are still babies, I would say even as they grow older they will spend half the day in their bed. OR if they are really lazy like my Bailey it will be more like 75% of their day. LOL  

AKC Casablanca Round Solid Pet Bed – found on Amazon.com for around 15$

4.       I recently decided to try these LIXIT water bottles out. They work like a charm! The puppies when they are little can drown in the water dishes, so I decided to try these bottles. The puppies love them and they are safe, clean and wonderful!

However, over time you may want to move to a water dish. Sometimes I feel like they may not get their entire thirst quenched, but then again, I have four dogs who prefer and only use the water bottles. So you will have to go by what you feel your puppy likes best. But, just know they are started on these LIXIT water bottles, you can buy them on Amazon.com or at Petco. Not sure if PetSmart has them, but for sure the other two places do.

Lixit Top Fill Dog Bottle found on Amazon.com for around 12$

5.       Puppy Pee Pads! This is the best invention ever. I LOVE these things. They are a life saver when potty training. I have also found that puppies love to and think it is so much fun to rip these up! So, I found this awesome little pee pad holder at Pet Co. Now when I place it in there and connect the latches they cannot rip it up! So, you can see the pee marks on it too. They use it and love it. It makes me happy!

AKC Training Pads – Found on Amazon.com for around 15$ for 100 pads

IRIS Puppy and Dog Training Pet Pad or Holder for around $15.99 on amazon.com

6.       These are puppy treats that I give my dogs. The Greenies are my favorite. They not only clean their teeth but help with puppy breath!

GREENIES Original Dental Dog Treats – Size Petite for around 30$ on Amazon.com

Milk-Bone MaroSnacks Dog Treats for All Sizes Dogs – 40 ounce for around 6.50$ on Amazon.com

Virbac C.E.T. Enzymatic Oral Hygiene Chews – Size Small around 7.50$ on Amazon.com

7.       LOVE these diapers! They are great for when we are potty training and on the move. I have taken my Minnie out to Orthodontist appointments for my son or down to Moms for Sunday dinner and we put these on in case of accidents. Because let’s face it, potty training is hard enough at home and then if you leave to an unknown environment they get even more confused. So these diapers are great to have on hand. AND they are cute too!

Pet Soft Fashion Cotton Demin Jeans Pet Disposable Diaper Cowboy Style Puppy Dog Diaper,XS—XL – size extra small found on Amazon 11.99$

8.       This is my dogs and puppies most favorite food. I start the puppies on this at about 4 weeks old. The kernels are super small and easy for them to eat or "GUM" when they are teething. I recommend staying on this brand, but if for some reason you want to switch, it is totally fine, just slowly add in whatever you are going to give your puppy with this. I will give you 1 bag of this food that should last about a month. So slowly add in whatever dog food you are going to give your puppy to this. Also, just leave it out all day. Shih Tzu's do not typically over eat. So always leave out food and water so they can eat and drink when they need. 

ROYAL CANIN BREED HEALTH NUTRITION Shih Tzu Puppy dry dog food, 2.5-Pound 29.99$ on amazon.com

9.       This is the only thing I use on my dogs as far as Shampoo and Conditioner goes. I get it on Amazon for a great price.

Nature's Specialties Plum Silky Pet Shampoo, 32-Ounce – found on amazon for 26$ best price I have found

Nature's Specialties Aloe Remoisturizer Pet Conditioner, 32-Ounce – found on Amazon 22$

10.   Every puppy needs good chew toys. You need to help them through their teething process. They will be getting in their adult teeth when they live with you. You may even find teeth on the floor or stuck in their toys. Do not worry about it, it is totally normal. I even had a lady who adopted one puppy from me save the tooth in her doggy scrapbook! So cute! Every dog needs their teeth brushed. This is the simplest way I have found to do that. This is the Finger Tooth Brush. I LOVE IT! It is really hard to try and brush your dog’s teeth with a long stick tooth brush. They DO NOT like it! BUT they like to chew on your fingers as you will soon find out, so you place the fingerbrush on your finger stick some beef smelling paste on it and it is so easy!

Pet Republique Cat & Dog Finger Toothbrush Set of 6 / 3 - Dental Hygiene Brushes for Small to Large Dogs, Cats, & Most Pets – found on amazon for 7$

CET Poultry Toothpaste, 70 gm – found on amazon.com for 10.98$

11.   Just like you and I, your dog needs a multi-vitamin. You can try and get them to eat them plain, sometimes they won’t, so wrap it in some meat and they will not know the difference. 4 of my dogs will eat this plain. It does smell like a puppy treat, so that is good as well. The others I just wrap it in meat.

Pro-Sense Daily Multivitamin Chewable Tablets, 90-Count – found on amazon.com for 13.36$ they have them in puppy, adult and senior!

12.   This is a way fun item that I found for my girls. These are not the cheap flimsy bows that you find a lot. They are strong and can be used over and over. I love them. The bows have tags on them and you just pull them off. Do not worry about breaking the band, it is strong and can uphold a lot. I have used the same bows on my girls 6 different times now and they don't show any wear or tear. So I highly recommend these to anyone looking to grow out their puppy’s top knot.

Aria Tiny Bows with Rosettes for Dogs, 100-Piece Canisters 15.95$ on amazon.com

13.   Ear cleaning solution. Sometimes puppies can get ear infections. So this is a good thing to use to help prevent that. Usually I wash my dogs once a week. I just don't like that "Dog" smell and so I will give them a nice bath usually every Friday. Before I do that, I will clean their Anal glands and then clean their ears as well. All you do is just squirt some in the ear, rub it around and around then take a cloth and wipe it out. Also, the hair in the ears is very fine. You can just pull it straight out. It is very simple, you just grab the hair with your thumb and fingers and pull it out. It does not hurt them at all. This will also help to prevent ear infections and to keep the ears clean.

Zymox Otic Pet Ear Treatment with Hydrocortisone – sold on Amazon.com for around 18.40$

14.   Now, this is kind of gross, so brace yourselves! Shih Tzu's do have a tendency to eat their own poops. Now, my husband calls it a gift, not having to clean up after a dog because they do it themselves. He will ask them sometimes how their "scooby snack" was... so gross... I however think it is super nasty, so I asked my Vet Dr. Anderson what I could do about this. He told me to try this little powder. It comes in packets and you sprinkle 1/4 of the packet on their food twice a day. It makes their poop taste "gross" if you can imagine ever it being yummy in the first place!! UGH! Sometimes they will not want to eat the powder on the food, so I will sprinkle it on a piece of Deli Turkey and wrap it up and feed it to them. This way I am sure to get it down the hatch. It usually take 2-3 days to stop the nasty "Scooby Snack" eating

ForBid Stop Stool Eating – on Amazon.com for about 18$

You are probably wondering why there is Calcium there on the right, well that is for my pregnant and nursing dogs. I place it in the pill crusher (little blue and white thing next to it) and crush it up and put it in a piece of turkey or well cooked deer and give it to them. It helps when they are pregnant with their babies and nursing of course takes a lot out of mommy. 

LOVE these diapers! They are great for when we are potty training and on the move. I have taken my Minnie out to Orthodontist appointments for my son or down to Moms for Sunday dinner and we put these on in case of accidents.

This is the only thing I use on my dogs. I get it on Amazon.com that is where I find the best prices and I usually buy the biggest ones as they last the longest. They are the best for sure and my dogs smell sooooo yummy for days! 

Every puppy needs good chew toys. You need to help them through their teething process. They will be getting in their adult teeth when they live with you. You may even find teeth on the floor or stuck in their toys. Do not worry about it, it is totally normal. I even had a lady who adopted one puppy from me save the tooth in her doggy scrapbook! So cute!

They love to chew on wood, this is something I have found. Out of all my dogs I have three that have chewed on the wood frame around my door. So I decided I would buy wood and let them chew that. WELL that solved that! They no longer chew on the door. BUT, plan ahead and get good chewing toys for your puppy. They will need them.  

Every dog needs their teeth brushed. This is the most simple way I have found to do that. This is the Finger Tooth Brush. I LOVE IT! 

It is really hard to try and brush your dogs teeth with a long stick tooth brush. They DO NOT like it! BUT they like to chew on your fingers as you will soon find out, so you place the fingerbrush on your finger stick some beef smelling paste on it and it is so easy!
